We have CMake support, so, as far as I'm concerned, getting autotools to work 
on Windows is Somebody Else's Problem, and if Somebody Else cares about it, 
they can figure out how to make it work (without breaking it on UN*X!) and 
submit a pull request.

I would *personally* prefer that we not have generated configure files in Git 
and require that autoconf be run (or, if it needs to be run with particular 
arguments, supply an autopen.sh file and require that it be run); if anybody 
has an argument against it, let us know.  (You can't say "make releasetar" 
without having run configure, so you can't make a release tarball without 
having generated configure, so there's nothing special required to ensure that 
the configure file is provided in the release tarball.)
